Receptionists will be asked to take on a number of clerical roles in the office, including answering phone calls, scheduling appointments, and working face-to-face with customers. Employers are looking for candidates with excellent organizational skills and who knows how to maintain a positive, helpful attitude in the workplace. In an interview you may be asked about any bookkeeping or scheduling experience you have. Be prepared with personal anecdotes about instances when you assuaged a frustrated customer or worked around a scheduling conflict.
In this position the majority of your day will be multitasking between projects and employee needs. How are you qualified to handle this much multitasking?
All of my past work experience has been mainly multitasking, from working with children to working in a restaurant. I am sure that if I can handle high stress multitasking situations like those I will be able to handle a front desk.
